Raised in Brant NY, I have a passion for exploring fields and forests, allowing my mind to wander. As many artists describe, I loved drawing and painting from a young age. Inspired by my husband and five children, I play with just about every medium possible, drawing from the day to day activities with them. I am now teaching new media arts in the same town I grew up. The urge to create is constantly nagging. I often play with digital graphics, animation, etc...but I am happiest when concentrating on my paintings. No buttons, no SD cards, no jpegs or pdf's. Just colorful, pungent oil paint.
